9 Best Breweries in New York!

What better way to spend an afternoon than in a local brewery tasting hoppy brews with friends? New York State is home to some of the finest microbreweries in the country. From golden ales to IPAs that pack a punch, these 9 breweries in New York serve up some of the best in the state.

Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn, NY

A pillar of the Brooklyn beer scene, this microbrewery is known for its very-drinkable lager, among other well-made craft brews. The Williamsburg brewery is a popular spot for visitors as well, with a taproom and tours that run every half hour on the weekends.

Ithaca Beer Company, Ithaca, NY

This brewery and bar is a Finger Lakes-region hotspot. The industrial space churns out perennial hits like Flower Power IPA and Apricot Wheat Beer and gives tours to visitors on weekends.

Sixpoint Brewery, Brooklyn, NY

Since 2004, this Red Hook brewery has brewed hundreds of beers using its “mad science” methods, and the results are consistently well received. Its core collection, which includes Bengali, Resin, The Crisp, and Sweet Action, is beloved among beer drinkers.

Threes Brewing, Brooklyn, NY

Threes Brewing occupies a hip warehouse space in Gowanus, with a spacious patio, a big-screen TV room, and an in-building 9th Street Espresso coffee shop. The brews on offer are delicious and as effortlessly cool as the space itself.

Greenpoint Beer & Ale Co., Brooklyn, NY

Canning and brewing small-batch ales and lagers, this bright, airy venue is a treat for locals and visitors alike. The craft brewery utilizes a “five-barrel” system that allows brewers to stay creative and on the cutting edge.

Montauk Brewing, Montauk, NY

Montauk Brewing began as a basement operation among three locals and has since grown into a large-scale brewery and cannery. It now operates a tasting room year-round, where you can sample ales with names like “Driftwood” and “Wave Chaser.”

Brewery Ommegang, Cooperstown, NY

Known for its fine Belgian beer, Ommegang’s tasting room is a destination in itself. Resting on 136 acres of farmland, the gorgeous white brewery space offers free tours every day, a café with local food, and an extensive event calendar.

Other Half Brewing, Brooklyn, NY

Other Half Brewing was started by two Brooklyn beer experts who insisted on producing high-quality craft beer in a centrally located brewing space. That business model was a success, and today the Carroll Gardens brewery produces a popular collection of IPAs, sours, stouts, golden ales, and more.

Grimm Artisanal Ales, Brooklyn, NY

Having gained a cult following among beer enthusiasts, Joe and Lauren Grimm of Grimm Artisanal Ales plan to finally open a tasting room in Williamsburg. In the meantime, the “nomadic brewery” continues to churn out magical beers like Afterimage and Lumen.
